President Muhammadu Buhari will address the nation at 7pm on Thursday.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, disclosed this in a statement titled, ‘President Buhari addresses the nation.’
The statement read, “Following detailed briefing by security chiefs on the current situation in the country, President Muhammadu Buhari will make a national broadcast Thursday, October 22, 2020 at 7pm.
“Television, radio and other electronic media outlets are enjoined to hook up to the network services of the Nigerian Television Authority and Radio Nigeria respectively for the broadcast.”
Meanwhile, National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno, had earlier said that the President will announce a ‘critical solution’ to the #ENDSARS protest in a couple of hours.
He spoke at the end of the fourth National Security Council meeting.
Addressing State House Correspondents at the end of the meeting, Monguno said the meeting basically dwelt on one subject matter, “the current security situation that has come about as a result of the ENDSARS protests.”
Buhari has been accused of not addressing Nigerians even as the protests against police brutality and institutional rot, which started about two weeks ago has degenerated into deaths and violence across the nation.
